Back on September 24th, Dee, our puppy class instructor, invited me to join her at a colleague’s home for a dog trainer BBQ. There weren’t really supposed to be clients there, just trainers, but because we have plans to show Orso in conformation and working and are CLUELESS about what we have to do, she thought it would be a good idea if we went. At this BBQ, we met many very nice people, including a woman by the name of Sheila Lieberman. Sheila has dedicated her entire life to the German Shepherd breed. She educates about the breed, promotes the breed, was a breeder and a successful exhibitor at countless AKC events. We immediately bonded with her and knew we had found a great partner to help us with Orso’s conformation career.
Today, Sheila hosted a 4-hour workshop at her home where she taught the basics of canine structure & movement, how to understand your breed’s standard and how dog shows work. Her family of gorgeous German Shepherds served as eager assistants! So was her Champion Pharaoh Hound, Amber! What a lesson this was for me! I walked out of there realizing that I have TONS of learning to do. Everything from the big picture down to the details is foreign to me. Wow, thank God for Sheila’s selflessness and desire to educate dummies like me!
